I like the Jeff Maehl choice, but went with Herzlich.

Character out the wazoo, little or no risk, and if he gets back to 100%, he is a huge steal.

tough for me between Herzlich and Locke. I'd like to have both on my team, but I guess ultimately an impact middle linebacker is probably a bit harder to find than a scatback.

Jeff Maehl

Good call.

I can't pick one. My tops are...

Terrance Tolliver
Cedric Thornton
Martin Parker
Mario Harvey
Ugo Chinasa

Ton of "big name" guys.

I think Jeron Johnson has the best career of any UDFA.

Herzlich destroying the competition thus far. I guess it should be the "biggest name", not the "best UDFA".

Herlich is clearly the best college player remaining. Whether he is the best NFL player is another question. My take is that he has very little chance of playing in the NFL, due to his injuries.

I would ahve been set to say Chris Nield, but he went next to last. So Mims over Ian Williams in a close one.

Jeff Maehl

I will also agree with this one. I think he will be a very good player for someone in the NFL.

My "other" vote is for Martin Parker.

Voted for Locke.
I had him as a late 2nd and 3rd round guy.

He really was one of my favorite running backs this year. He has great breakaway speed but he is also agile and can change speeds quickly. That being said he also had the ability to run in between tackles using his good vision and some power. Additionally he's a guy who can catch the ball well out of the backfield, and return kicks/punts. So really in my books he was more than a scat back and more of a guy I thought that could come in, and split carries with a bigger back while still helping on special teams.

In the UFL

What is the deal with Ugo Chinasa?

Guy's got some elite measurables and decent production...

Must have absolutely no heart whatsoever...
